    Sorry if somebody already posted this. I was looking to see if anyone could make various styles of flats. From fairly plain to flats with ribbons or bows. I'll include some of what I'm talking about.

    (I am answering a bit late on this request, but I wasn't around here in the meantime.)

    Nothing can be done with those references. If you cannot find other ones elsewhere, go on "DSW" and make screenshots of the higher resolution avaialable, save them on your computer, then upload them here (put them in the first post to make things clearer).

    For exemple, here is what i could get from DSW.com with the technique I am giving:

    Do not forget that references must show the shoe exactly from the side (like the ones you already uploaded), a slight angle makes things much more complicated to the modder.

    This is quite useless for example:

    Some important points:
    • If the shoes are not symetric, it can be useful to provide another view from the other side (even if only the bottom of the left foot of SDT girl is actually shown ingame).
    • A picture showing the sole is also helpful, because in SDT, the shoes are not shown directly from the side, but let see the sole on the right foot (it is important if the shoe has marked reliefs on its sole). A plain flat sole is also possible, but it can make the shoes not looking very nice.
    • Also, as the shoes will be completly redrawn, colour is not important. Try to find the colour that shows the best the seams (RGB sliders will probably be added, so any colour can be applied).
    Finally, keep in mind that there are only a few modders here that can make costume mods, so try to facilitate their work as much as possible if you really want something to be done.

    If you make vector tracings of the shoes you want (SVG files made with inkscape for example), things can certainly be done very fast (there are tutorials for Inkscape in our Help/Tutorials section and also many over the web). Adobe Illustrator is another option.
